We believe everyone needs the hope Jesus offers, so our passion is to help people find that hope and grow in a relationship with Him. We emphasize grace and acceptance, yet we’re equally passionate about truth, as we help people understand who Jesus is and how to take the next right step in their journey of faith.Learn More
By following Jesus, you can receive the grace and forgiveness He offers. This decision can begin with a prayer as simple as this:
Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross for my sin, and offering me grace and forgiveness so that I can have peace with God. I want to follow You with my whole life, and I humbly ask You to lead me into a relationship with You.
Baptism is an outward sign of an inward change. It symbolizes a believer finding new life in Jesus and publicly identifying himself or herself as a Christ-follower. Baptism takes place during Sunday morning worship services on various dates at each of our campuses.
Lend a Hand
We believe that lending a hand helps us grow closer to Jesus and find hope – and sharing our time and talents is a key part of that. We have opportunities for you to lend a hand by serving at Fairhaven, in our community, and around the world.
Dedicate my child
Your child’s dedication is your public declaration to commit yourself to raise your child to know Christ as their Savior, and that you commit yourself, as parents, to provide an environment in which that can happen. Child Dedication services are offered twice per year at each of our campuses.
Any Christ-follower who regularly attends Fairhaven Church is welcome to become part of our covenant membership. Membership events are offered twice per year at each of our campuses.
There are three parts of a membership event:
Join a small group
Life is better lived in circles than in rows, which is why community is so important to us. Small groups are made up of 8-12 people who meet in homes for study, discussion and prayer. You can join an existing group, start your own or form a “test drive” small group to test out the small group experience for a single sermon series.
Share your story, submit prayer request, or let us know about your experience today.
Your generosity makes it possible for us to impact children, students and adults through our ministries. It also helps us come alongside the underserved and hurting in our community.

Leave our old life behind
“As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he rose and followed him.” –Matthew 9:9
Leads to difficult decisions
“To another he said, “Follow me…” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” And Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead…”” –Luke 9:59-60
Strive to be like Him
“And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.”” —John 8:29
Actively listen to His voice
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” — John 10:27
To follow Jesus is to submit to His plan rather than Jesus giving in to ours.
